I find “flat-earthers” bizarre (and stupid) beyond words. I find most far right leaning people too weird to talk to. But I have a special hatred of the “anti-vaxxers.” These are people who — denying all science and rationality — put all of us in danger. They urge the ancient lethal diseases back to ravage us. They put me, my children, and my grandchildren in real life-and-death danger because they can’t believe facts when they see them.
These people are not only stupid. They are dangerous and frankly, any un-vaccinated child should be prevented from attending school. In my opinion, they should be kept away from any public function or group activity. It may not be their fault, but they are walking, talking death traps.
These people and their families need their own island … far away from the rest of us.
Vaccines work by introducing a weakened form of the germ to your body, so that the immune system can learn to recognize it. Your body then builds its defenses so it’s prepared to fight off a real attack later in life. And no, vaccines do not cause autism. They neither give you peanut allergy.
